Anarkali-3 Ways

So any occasion conventionally calls for dressing up in sarees, lehengas, anarkalis and suit-salwars.

I recently got engaged and since it was a just a family affair, I decided to keep it really simple. A saree, or a lehenga or a pair of  suit-salwar would have been too grand for an inhouse ceremony. So I was on a look out for a simple ensemble. I wear handloom mostly, I try to, so I knew where to go. Safina Plaza houses a bunch of handloom boutiques. I have had several strolls in the corridors of Safina Plaza. I have a few favorites there too. Nauchandi is one such boutique. Love their stuff!  Very contemporary and right up my alley.

So I saw this chanderi silk anarkali at their store and fell in love instantly for it was so simple and rich in fabric at the same time. Just how I like it. It came with a jacket which I didn’t wear because I had something else in mind for the day.

Whenever I buy something, I make sure I have atleast 3 ways to wear it.

So here are the 3 ways, I had in mind-

Indian route-

This is what I wore on my engagement. I teamed it up with this gorgeous banarasee dupatta. Wore simpler earrings on the actual day. But you can switch things up with a bigger pair as in the pictures.


This style is the most I resonate with. My personal style, I’d say. I love wearing neckpieces as is very evident on my Instagram. This time around I paired 2 which were similar in texture. And were almost from the same colour family. I love how the look turned out to be. You can wear it to any day-event.

No brainer-

I love wearing anarkalis as dresses. I don’t think I have ever worn them with salwar, leggings or palazzos. I choose to take the pant less route always. This time around I thought of wearing it with my corset belt and my open toe mules. This is such an easy breezy outfit.

How would you like to wear your anarkalis?
